Rated 5 out of 5áby TheLeftCoast Maine Guide Waxed Canvas 2 Piece Rod Case
I just received my rod case and I love it. I'm going to use it for transporting my bamboo rods. I was able to put six rod tubes inside, three through the loops and three secured between them, and had no trouble closing the case, probably could have put two more in. Rod tubes were secure, no clanking around, plenty of padding. The outside pockets are very secure, zippered closures, you can put several reels in each of them or a couple of fly boxes. The longest two piece rod was an 8'3" and I'm sure the case could handle a two piece 8'6" rod. Great craftsman ship, has that old fashioned feel. Def. worth the price, am going to buy another one as soon as Bean has another sale!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Phragi Very nice!
This is certainly the nicest rod case I have ever seen. Quality throughout. It protects the rod tube as well as the rod. With all the quilted padding, it could probably serve as a gun case as well.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Shag126 Very well built
Like other reviews, I agree that this is a heavy and somewhat bulky item. The padding is excellent. It should protect even the finest of rods and reels. The outside pockets have plenty of room for fly boxes or whatever else you may need. The design is classic, but with modern features such as magnetic clasps for the buckle straps. I would buy this again.

Rated 3 out of 5áby chromek9 Beautiful but heavy
This is a beautiful product. It appears to be very well built and shows signs of a quality product that should last for many years. Despite the great features of the product, it is just too heavy for my taste. I am looking for a product that I can use traveling on airplanes, etc. Weight is a critical factor for me, so I returned the product.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MargaretFalls Huge Quality Protection
Significant step forward in rod tube travel protection. Very high quality product. Heavy duty in all respects - tough canvas and inside padding will certainly give the protection we all want when traveling in vehicles. Rod tubes are held securely, large outside pockets are a plus. I have an older rod tube holder from Bean's I purchased many years ago and still use it but not for traveling. This new product has elastic holders for three rods but will store six easily. SO I plan to leave a few at home when I'm on the road. It is not light in weight and that's OK. I wanted a quality case for my bamboo rods and the ability to carry three in total protection. You will not be disappointed in this strong carry case.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SteveDW A 'modern classic' - rugged and durable
As a rule, I avoid 'imported' goods. Due to the LLBean brand, I bought the rod case; and it is indeed a quality-crafted piece, far exceeding my guarded expectations. 'Old School' bamboo fly rods are my choice, and this bag will hold up to five rod tubes handily - three in the elastic loops and two strapped between. Amply quilt-padded inside and durable heavy waxed canvas outside makes for one tough carrier. Exterior pockets are oversized and easily hold reels, fly boxes, and other accessories. Simply fold over and strap one end to meet airline limits. Best fishing luggage for the job.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Speysport An excellent bag
This is a well-designed, well-built and sturdy bag for 2-piece rods. It will easily accommodate 58" rod tubes. It has elastic loops to hold three tubes in place and the bag will probably take four or five tubes (depending on their diameter) if the loops aren't used. The bag is heavy canvas and interior cushioning adds further protection to rod tubes. The external pockets will hold a substantial amount of additional gear. The zippers have loops to enable the bag to be locked. All in all, this is an excellent bag.

Rated 5 out of 5áby kourtlyn elegant
First I must say LL Bean has impeccable customer service. They really care about exceeding expectations. The rod case is of excellent quality and much heavier than expected. When I say heavier, I mean it is not a cheaply made case, it has girth to it. The two outer pockets are large enough to keep fly boxes, reels and other gadgets. The interior lining is of good quality, again not cheaply made. The overall appearance of the rod case is very elegant and traditional. I would highly recommend this case.
